While I normally enjoy articles I read on The Resurgence, this one has me shaking my head.
This article embodies everything I despise about contemporary Christian culture. It’s the ever so consistent, never-willing-to-die mentality of “Let’s steal from the world and put a Christian sounding veneer on it” that makes me not want to admit I’m a Christian in certain crowds. Also, it never pointed out why the world is wrong about marriage. The author jumps to conclusions with no attempts at laying out evidence.
Spending large chunks of time away from your husband, flirting with other men, and seeking selfish pleasures are invitations to disaster.
While this is true, the author makes no attempts at laying out why it’s true. There is nothing here to wrestle with. This article fails to get into the nitty-gritty of life.
One would think that Christians would produce the best counsel, the best songs, the best academics, the best works of art and be the best athletes. Sadly, we so often strive just to “be different” from the world. No wonder so many children of church goers end up bitter against Christianity.
